Just a quick FYI on a new KB article that was published. When you try to use the Microsoft Azure Backup (MAB) offline seeding feature, the import job may fail to continue after it sends the drive to Azure for importing. Additionally, the MAB interface displays the following message:
Waiting for Azure Import Job to complete. Please check on Azure management portal for more information on job status.
Additionally, you may see entries that resemble the following in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent\Temp\CBEngineCurr.errlog:
